This isn’t normally somthing I collect. I’m more of a desk fan man.... Few weeks ago I saw this rather unusual manning bowman box fan at a flea market and got it for next to nothing. I think the motor needs some work but will be rather easy to fix. Does anyone know a specific model for it? I see a lot of box fans but this one is rather odd. It also has the switch for 3 speeds and then exhaust speeds. Nifty. 

Also the back- non motor side  of the fan is completely flat while the front sticks out. Just haven’t seen one like this . But like I said. I don’t really collect these. So sorry if this is a simple fix 

Thanks to all who look or comment.

they are out there and are around, from the earlier 50s, and these were in convertible form as an international brand where the fan can have been on a window fan panel, on a roll stand with a front grille, or as a floor fan like this with a front grille as well... it is a good save!
